The researchers found that poor sleep habits can have a negative effect on self-control, which presents risks to individuals' personal and professional lives. "Our study explored how sleep habits and self-control are interwoven and sleep habits and self-control may work together to affect a person's daily functioning," said one of the study authors June Pilcher, professor at Clemson University in the US. Studies have found that sleep deprivation decreases self-control but increases hostility in people, which can create problems in the workplace and at home," she said. "Many aspects of our daily lives can be affected by better-managed sleep and self-control capacity."
